A little about me

Born and raised in downtown Steamboat Springs, Ben spent his childhood at Howelsen Hill dreaming of someday competing in the Winter Olympics. A member of the US Ski Team for five years, Ben made 24 World Cup starts and competed in multiple World Championships. He represented the United States in the 2018 Winter Olympics, becoming one of 96 Olympians from Steamboat Springs dating back to 1948.

After realizing his Olympic dream, Ben headed to the University of New Mexico, where he earned his BA in Media and Journalism. While in Albuquerque, Ben raced for the UNM Ski Team, becoming a team captain and D-1 Academic All American. GO LOBOS!

Most recently, Ben was the Marketing Director for USA Nordic where he focused on building strong foundational partnerships within the Olympic and outdoor industry. Unable to shake the Yampa Valley Curse, Ben returned to Steamboat Springs to join the Boyd Team, forming The Boyd & Berend Group at Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty.

Ben comes from a family in the custom home business and understands the importance of the ideal space. He brings his driven approach and local knowledge to The Boyd & Berend Group and aims to not only navigate his clients through successful transactions, but to create an experience that is cherished for years to come.

Outside of work, Ben can be found volunteering his time at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, gravel riding, or enjoying Chowders at Storm Peak Brewing.
